Delay For LS Results

Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Surendra Kumar  said that the declaration of election results of Lok Sabha in Odisha is likely to be delayed compared to other states.

 
Mr.Kumar said that since votes for State Legislative Assembly polls will also have to be counted, a senior election official said Monday.
 
Besides, Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPATs) will also have to be counted and that will also take some time.
 
The votes will be counted across the country on 23, May.
 
"The vote counting in Odisha will require more time as the state is conducting simultaneous polls for both the Lok Sabha and the Assembly," Mr.Kumar said.
 
CEO was addressing an Intensive Training Program of Returning Officers here.
 
While the counting of Lok Sabha votes will be held in 14 tables across the country, in Odisha it will be 07 tables each for the Lok Sabha and the State Legislative Assembly, the CEO said.
 
Accordingly the declaration of results will take time in Odisha for this reason, Mr.Kumar said.
 
And for the first time, the VVPATs are to be counted along with the votes in the EVMs.
 
As per a Supreme Court of India Order, the VVPAT slips of five EVMs in every constituency need to be counted. The VVPAT will be selected on a random basis through a transparent lottery system, the CEO informed.
 
Mr.Kumar said at least 45 minutes are required to complete the process of such sequential counting of VVPATs.
 
In view of the prevailing heat wave condition in the state, counting halls across the state will be air-conditioned for the first time, CEO Mr.Kumar informed.

Polling for 21 Lok Sabha constituencies and 146 State Legislative Assembly was held in the state in four phases on 11, 19, 23, 29 April.
 
Patkura Assembly Segment polling has been postponed for 60 days due to Cyclone FANI hit the State in general and particularly Kendrapada District.
 
The EVMs are now in the safe strong room since completion of the fourth phase of elections conducted in the State.
